Half an hour of spam

22 spam messages made it to my inbox between 7.17pm and 7.46pm this evening.

I decided to check whether my spam box had been similarly inundated. It had: a further 505 messages hit my spam box in the same 30 minute period. That compares to exactly 3,500 messages in the last 30 days (older spam is automatically deleted). That’s an average of 2.43 messages per half-hour period. So 505 was a bit of a surge.

So while I was a bit annoyed to get 22 unwanted emails in my inbox, it’s better than getting 527, and a 95.8% detection rate isn’t so bad.

Thanks, Google.
